The downside is that I did not have pathways planned and potato patch was off the beaten path. I did not care for it very well.
So it was with some trepidation when I dug one hill of potatoes. I wanted to see how many there were and I wanted to taste these "gourmet" potatoes.

Man's wristwatch included for size reference. Much better yield that I deserve considering my lack-of-care. This hill yielded well over a pound of potatoes.
They live up to their billing regarding taste. The first two potatoes I ate had "hollow heart" so I will keep an eye out for that.
These potatoes are named "Spartan Splash" because they came out of the Michigan State Spartan breeding program. Given the color scheme I think they would be better named for this school
Maybe I can get a little potato salad business going with Pawpaw and Tanker.
